Almost £50,000 in lottery funding has been awarded to a social housing provider to help it enhance communities in Merseyside.
Riverside has been awarded £49,000 from the Big Lottery Fund's initiative which will be split between two projects in its Changing Spaces Programme.
The funding will benefit Steps to Sustainability, which helps residents take ownership of environmental improvements such as allotment schemes and gardening in Tranmere and Rock Ferry on the Wirral.
It will also support the Vauxhall canal side project, which will work with more than 50 young people in arts and technical activities to promote positive use of the canal side.
The cash boost was awarded to Riverside, which owns or manages around 50,000 homes, as a reward for successful funding management and for making a positive impact in the local area.
Angela Dalton, regeneration officer at Riverside, said: "This is great news for Riverside and these particular projects. The further funding recognises the commitment and hard work of everyone involved."
